VH-APN (1) de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger
Another rare, albeit grainy shot
of a Tiger from the Roger McDonald collection. This one was
owned by the Casino, NSW
Aero Club in 1948. The bloke fussing with the front cockpit straps
looks like a fast food chef at a
KFC, except in those days there was no such thing as KFC.
VH-APN was a UK built
machine with the RAF serial R5183 and was one of those Tigers
which were never allocated RAAF A17- serials. It was sold
to the Singapore Aero Club in
1949 as VR-SCY.
